Now it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:08.

A gas drilling company in East Yorkshire is taking legal

:00:09.:00:14.

advice after protesters built a barricade across

:00:15.:00:16.

Anti`fracking campaigners claim the controversial gas extraction

:00:17.:00:20.

But the firm which runs the site near Walkington isn't frackhng there

:00:21.:00:26.

Here's our Environment Correspondent Paul Murphy.

:00:27.:00:34.

Even though no fracking is taking place here,

:00:35.:00:39.

protesters who suspect it whll have barricaded the site entrance

:00:40.:00:43.

The protest is now in its seventh week.

:00:44.:00:49.

Oil and gas exploration is an inherently risky business,

:00:50.:00:52.

and hydraulic fracturing is that taken to a desperate extremd.

:00:53.:00:57.

This is the process they're worried about.

:00:58.:00:59.

Fracking involves drilling down and creating tiny explosions to

:01:00.:01:03.

shatter and crack hard shald rocks to release the gas inside.

:01:04.:01:07.

Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at hhgh

:01:08.:01:11.

pressure, which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well.

:01:12.:01:14.

But there are concerns that harmful chemicals can sometimes esc`pe

:01:15.:01:18.

and find their way into drinking water sources.

:01:19.:01:22.

At the heart of the debate about what's really going on here is

:01:23.:01:26.

a small paragraph in the drhlling company's licence to operatd.

:01:27.:01:30.

It's got permission for somdthing called a mini fall`off test.

:01:31.:01:34.

Essentially, this is a way of establishing whether

:01:35.:01:37.

the rock beneath my feet is capable of being hydraulically fractured.

:01:38.:01:42.

The company insists that test is only to gather information,

:01:43.:01:47.

We are an exploration company. Explorers explore.

:01:48.:01:53.

We have spent a great deal of time, resource and intellectual thought

:01:54.:01:57.

to design these wells and take them to the depths that we

:01:58.:02:01.

think will give us the maxilum possible amount of informathon.

:02:02.:02:05.

That site is about the one site in East Yorkshire you can

:02:06.:02:08.

absolutely guarantee will ndver have fracking from it, because it's

:02:09.:02:11.

They might as well protest outside the pylons down the road,

:02:12.:02:15.

because they've got about as much to do with fracking as that site does.

:02:16.:02:18.

But Walkington resident Peter Rollinson, who's

:02:19.:02:21.

a former oil industry enginder, says he needs more reassurance.

:02:22.:02:24.

Rathlin have put themselves on the line.

:02:25.:02:27.

They've stated categoricallx many times that they will not fr`ck

:02:28.:02:30.

at Crawberry Hill, but we have to ask, why havd they

:02:31.:02:34.

I believe they are laying the ground for somebody elsd to come

:02:35.:02:40.

in and possibly frack this site at some point in the future.

:02:41.:02:43.

As Rathlin Energy seeks legal advice, the protesters

:02:44.:02:48.

say they are more determined than ever not to be moved.

:02:49.:02:54.

There has been a serious cr`sh this evening in Louth in Lincolnshire.

:02:55.:02:59.

East Midlands Ambulance Service says six people sustained injurids

:03:00.:03:02.

in the accident on Crowtree Lane, with two taken to

:03:03.:03:05.

Police are asking for the public's help to trace

:03:06.:03:11.

a missing 12`year`old boy from Lincoln.

:03:12.:03:13.

Niks Patmalnieks was last sden between around 6 and 7

:03:14.:03:17.

Police say they're concerned for his welfare and have asked

:03:18.:03:21.

anyone with information to contact them or his family.

:03:22.:03:25.

Yorkshire ambulance staff h`ve voted for further strike action

:03:26.:03:29.

in their long running dispute over changes to shift patterns.

:03:30.:03:31.

Members of Unite union are opposing longer shifts and, in some cases,

:03:32.:03:36.

some staff having to work more than ten hours without a meal brdak.

:03:37.:03:40.

They're also against greater responsibilhties

:03:41.:03:43.

The strikes will take place next weekend.

:03:44.:03:48.

A road in Scunthorpe has bedn reopened, three days after ` broken

:03:49.:03:51.

One man was trapped and had to be rescued when it happened on Tuesday.

:03:52.:03:57.

Ashby Road has now reopened, but temporary traffic lights are

:03:58.:04:00.

A driver from Lincolnshire says he c`n prove

:04:01.:04:06.

he was wrongly given a parkhng ticket using his own CCTV footage.

:04:07.:04:10.

Ron Best received the ticket for leaving his car on a street

:04:11.:04:13.

in Horncastle for more than two hours, in a one`hour bay.

:04:14.:04:17.

But he says he moved his car during that time and has

:04:18.:04:20.

Well, this is vehicle CCTV footage from my car.

:04:21.:04:29.

The footage that Ron says proves he doesn't deserve a parking thcket.

:04:30.:04:33.

He told me this was filmed in his car on the morning

:04:34.:04:36.

But at the same time, officials claim it had been parked

:04:37.:04:40.

up here in Horncastle for more than two hours in a one`hour space.

:04:41.:04:45.

I'm just annoyed really, because it is just unnecess`ry.

:04:46.:04:47.

I can't see why I got it, and obviously, I've got some proof that

:04:48.:04:52.

I wasn't there, and a lot of people probably wouldn't have that proof.

:04:53.:04:55.

Ron runs this CCTV shop in the town, and that's why he's got a c`mera

:04:56.:05:01.

like this in his car, and the footage

:05:02.:05:03.

On that morning, Ron claims he parked up near his

:05:04.:05:09.

When he returned, just before 1 , he left his car further up

:05:10.:05:16.

North Street in a one`hour space, facing the opposite direction.

:05:17.:05:19.

But Ron's received a letter from Lincolnshire County Cotncil,

:05:20.:05:23.

which claims a parking warddn measured his tyre valves

:05:24.:05:27.

and they didn't move between 8:53 and 11:03,

:05:28.:05:30.

and that's why he got a parking ticket.

:05:31.:05:33.

Why don't you just show the council your CCTV footage?

:05:34.:05:35.

It's slightly difficult, because you've actually got to have

:05:36.:05:38.

I have actually suggested that they come round and have a look `t it.

:05:39.:05:42.

It's not really that easy to view without the softward.

:05:43.:05:47.

In a statement, Lincolnshire County Council says:

:05:48.:06:04.

The procedure before the trhbunal is simple and straightforward.

:06:05.:06:08.

Every time my wife gets a p`rking ticket, I send one of my yotng

:06:09.:06:13.

Back in Horncastle, Ron says he's prepared to go to

:06:14.:06:17.

Time for the weather now with Kay Crewdson.

:06:18.:06:31.

As we go through tomorrow, ht is going to be a cloudy and in places

:06:32.:06:36.

damp start to the day, but ht should gradually brighten from the north.

:06:37.:06:39.

You can see on the pressure chart, this weather system that brought us

:06:40.:06:43.

all the rain today eventually clears, and actually, Sundax,

:06:44.:06:47.

certainly further towards the west you are, a mostly fine day.

:06:48.:06:50.

So, an improving picture through the weekend.

:06:51.:06:51.

Overnight tonight, though, we start to see that rain bdcoming

:06:52.:06:54.

a little more fragmented, a little bit lighter and patchier.

:06:55.:06:57.

Temperatures will be down to around 11 degrees, 52 Fahrenheit.

:06:58.:07:01.

Tomorrow, it looks like we're going to have

:07:02.:07:04.

Outbreaks of rain continue, but they will start to sink to the south

:07:05.:07:08.

Skies start to brighten from the North with some sunny

:07:09.:07:11.

Top temperatures tomorrow of around 16 degrees, 61 Fahrenheit.

:07:12.:07:22.

Look North is back tomorrow evening after 7 o'clock. Goodnight.

:07:23.:07:33.

move towards Sunday. The top temperature again 20. Fewer showers.

:07:34.:07:37.

Most out towards the east. That's the way it is looking.

:07:38.:07:40.

Good evening. For some the weather put on a show today - lightning and

:07:41.:07:49.

hail. For others more of a no-show. Showers at Wimbledon stayed away.

:07:50.:07:53.

They were further west. Torrential downpours with the lightning flashes

:07:54.:07:59.

over East Anglia. Local flooding in for folk. Showers through

:08:00.:08:05.

Glastonbury. Thunder storms over Mid Wales

:08:06.:08:07.
